ITALIAN engineer Enrico Berruti admits that it was simply his personal laziness that first prompted him to come up with the idea for a gadget to have a bed that makes itself.
Three years later, his first prototype is on show at an International Exhibition of Inventions in Geneva.
The bed has a contraption at the sides that you wrap bedsheets or duvet over.
The sheet is rolled out when the two fasteners it is attached to move along metal bars on both sides of the bed.
Once the sheet is spread over the bed, the two bars are automatically lowered – when you press a button – smoothing out the sheet and tightening it over the bed.
